It's been almost 10 days since my Guidehouse application status (on my Dashboard) got updated to "Reviewed" but I have not heard from anyone yet. Is there still hope or should I assume that my application got rejected?

I would not take the time to mean much. We are hiring SCs but HR can be pretty disorganized

What are your favorite places/brands for buying casual dresses? I’m WFH and STRUGGLING with productivity. I’m now “getting dressed” every a.m. in hopes of tricking myself into more motivation. I feel ridiculous wearing my usual work clothes, so I’m looking for dresses/options that are more casual but are still real clothes? Please also share any tips for (1) resetting when you’ve let your life go to hell and are v overwhelmed with fixing it and (2) staying focused + motivated while WFH. TIA!

Probably a better bowl but would love advice. Partner and I are getting car insurance for first time in many years. In our 30s. No negative driving history. Two drivers on a single small SUV (certified pre owned). What seems like a reasonable monthly or annual price? Is this something you can generally negotiate or it’s pretty fixed / industry standards? Also what impacts your rate? Does your credit score / history come into play? We need any and all advice! Thanks 🐟!

I'm trying to switch from consulting to product management. Is it possible to make the switch directly or would I need to go to business school? Are any FAANG companies keen on PMs with a consulting background? Are there any courses or books that could help me make the switch? I've been seeinga lot of ads Product School for instance. Is that a better value substitute for business school? Sorry for the question overload lol. Thanks in advance for your help 🙂

Does anybody know any solutions for having someone care for a mildly sick child? I have a 1-year-old in daycare and my wife and I both work. He is picking up various illnesses which is unfortunately not unusual for his age at daycare. If he has a fever he has to miss the following day of daycare even after the fever is gone. This is a good policy with covid but difficult for two working parents. Bright horizons used to provide care in this scenario but not in 2020 even with a negative covid test
